Jesus knows Us

I want to know Christ — yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so somehow, attaining to the resurrection from the dead. Philippians 3:10,11

Jase, from Duck Dynasty, wrote about this verse today. He said he remembered as a kid, his dad telling him that the key to being a great duck hunter, was to do what ducks did. He said he needed to observe and listen to real ducks to know how to imitate them.  Then, he said that Jesus became like us to connect with us and reconcile us to the Father.

Jesus knows us. He became flesh, and suffered and died. He knows our sorrows. He saw the troubles of humanity.

If you have any problems, Jesus is well acquainted with whatever you are going through.

The lyrics to a song come to mind:

What a Friend we Have in Jesus

What a friend we have in Jesus,
all our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry
everything to God in prayer!
O what peace we often forfeit,
O what needless pain we bear,
all because we do not carry
everything to God in prayer!

Have we trials and temptations?
Is there trouble anywhere?
We should never be discouraged;
take it to the Lord in prayer!
Can we find a friend so faithful
who will all our sorrows share?
Jesus knows our every weakness;
take it to the Lord in prayer!

Are we weak and heavy laden,

cumbered with a load of care?

Precious Savior, still our refuge–

take it to the Lord in prayer!
Do your friends despise, forsake you?
Take it to the Lord in prayer!
In his arms he’ll take and shield you;
you wilt find a solace there.

Thank You Jesus for carrying all my heavy burdens, and helping me through so many troubles. You are truly my best friend!
